Do you have any information of illegal shore-based shark fishing?
Shark Watch is committed to providing anonymous citizen-driven reporting of illegal shark fishing activities. Shore-based shark fishing can put the public in danger by conditioning sharks to feed in certain areas. You could unknowingly be surfing or swimming where shark fishing occurred the night before.
Please fill out the form below if you know of beaches where shark fishing is prevalent, individuals posting illegal activity on social media, or any other tip that might protect sharks and our beaches.
